Some newer pics. This heat is really making me regret procrastinating on window film.

Finally removed the fishbowl look and got some film on the windows! Also shots of the nameless axle-back installed and new wheels arrived Can't wait for the new wheel setup, pending tires. Open to suggestions!

Are you wanting summer, all season, or winter tires?

aye, there's the rub!

I need to repair 1 of the stock wheels which I curbed like a jacka$$. I currently have the stock Dunlop SportMax RT 245/40R18 97W which are OK



The plan is summers on the BBS set soon as I still have time for summers this season in CT, and give me some time for the repair.

I will likely go for winter tires (or all-seasons) on the stock wheels later this year (Nov-ish). I have no experience with summers or snows; I've run all-seasons on previous cars, and am not loyal to any particular brand.

I feel the WRX would be bulletproof with a set of snows and would prefer something that's balanced i.e. still reasonable when it's not actually snowing.

For all-seasons I've been very happy with Continental Extreme Contact DWS in the past. Good balance of comfort, noise, wet performance, grip in minor snow, and still grippy in summer. Never tried the "DW"

I'd like the summer tires to have some meat to them and fill out the wheel well a bit more without lowering the car, so I'm thinking 245/45-18.

That lime green fits in so well the DGM. Car looks great! Just heard they released the wiring for the new 2018-2020 headlights to fit older 2015-2017 models... might have to grab me some they looked way better!

I'm a huge fan of the LEDs that came with my limited trim, TBH it's one of the reasons I went with WRX limited instead of an STI base. I don't fully regret that, but the STI trans would've been nice.

New shoes and soles yesterday! Got a set of '14 STI BBS wheels on here, mounted them with Falken Ziex 245/45r18 and so far, I'm loving them!

Unfortunately the center caps from my '19 wheels did not fit these, so I'm looking for a set of those.
